Too little skepticism - too much atronomy

I like this podcast. I don’t love it. The strong point is Dr. Steven Novella himself. Very knowledgeable and excellent at explaining complicated topics.

The polar opposite is Bob Novella, who always picks an atronomy topic and always fumbles over his words so the meaning evaporates...

In general the hosts seem further and further away from doing actual skeptical groundwork themsselves - in contrast to the Skeptics with a K guys.

I would suggest to cut the show down to 30 minutes. Focus half and half on sketical stories and all brand of science (not just astronomy). I could happily do without the smalletalk (hosts are not as funny as they think they are), Star Wars / Trek stuff and recurring items such as ‘whos that noicy?’
